I'm reading/skimming the new cookbook/notebook Prune by Gabrielle Hamilton, which is printed to mimic the binders full of recipes from her restaurant. As such, it contains lots of marginalia. Awesome! But I can't figure out what she means by "wax." [more inside]
My boyfriend is an amazing cook and has been making delicious, bacon-fat-heavy dishes from Thomas Keller's cookbook. My waistline and tummy prefer lighter, semi-vegetarian fare, but I don't want to discourage his wonderful cooking. Is there a cookbook the two of us might be equally happy with?
My bestest friends host a New Year's Eve party each year with the caveat that everyone bring an appetizer they've never made before to share. It's great fun and each year we've found a new favorite recipe and one that gets scrapped into the garbage after the first taste. That said, I'd love to bring them an appetizer cookbook as a thank you for hosting AND bring the best damn appetizer ever. Cookbooks with great appetizer sections are okay, but I'd prefer a full-on appetizer cookbook recommendation. No restrictions to ethnicity or ingredients. Thanks!
